"Circle jerk"? That sounds as though it may be a synonym of "roun(d)
poun(d)," an um-game in which a bunch of guys sit in a circle and each
masturbates the guy to his left. The first one to ejaculate wins. (So
I've been told. An Army buddy said that playing this um-game was the
way in which he learned to masturbate.}

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
